The BBC has been leading its bulletins this morning on the latest statement by Minister Lenihan. He gave an extensive interview on the influential Today programme on Radio 4. Listeners can make their own assessment of its tone by listening to it at http://news.bbc.co.uk/today/hi/today/newsid_9047000/9047087.stm
You might be alarmed to learn that the BBC headlines the interview on its website as “Lenihan: Ireland ‘can’t print money'”. Is the Minister restarting his midnight visits to Dave McWilliams gaff?
